I made a double batch of regular jam, a double batch of Splenda jam, a double batch of regular blueberry orange marmalade, and a double batch of Splenda marmalade. I've think I will have everyone covered with all of that!
For the jam I just used the recipe in the Sure Jel box. For the marmalade, the recipe follows. I was going to take a picture, but you know how I am about the camera, and besides, this dark purple stuff in the pot or in jars just would not show up very well. So here's the marmalade recipe.
BLUEBERRY ORANGE MARMALADE
1 1/2 med. or large oranges (I use large ones... I LOVE oranges)
1 cup of water
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups crushed blueberries
5 cups sugar (or Splenda)
1 box fruit pectin (If using Splenda be sure to get the pectin labeled "No Sugar" pectin!)
1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine to prevent foaming
Peel the oranges; remove white pith from the rind and finely chop rind. Chop orange pulp and set aside. Place rind in a large pot with water and baking soda; bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Be sure to NOT let this boil dry!
Add chopped orange pulp, crushed berries, butter and pectin. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring very frequently. Add sugar; return to a rolling boil stirring constantly; continue boiling for 1 minute.
Remove from heat; pour into sterile jars, seal, and invert for 5 minutes. Turn right side up and let cool completely. Yield about 6 pints.
